Phase 2, Step 2: Defining the Scope

  1. Type of Emergency: (Select one or at most two that are high priority, have not been exercised recently, or best support functions to be tested)
  2. Geographic Location: (Be specific; make sure it is logical for the hazard choice)
  3. Functions: (Choose the most important to be tested; three to five are usually sufficient)
  4. Personnel and Organizations: (Select those that would benefit most and match the functions to be tested)
  5. Exercise Type: (Consider the exercise experience of personnel involved and the desired degree of stress and complexity)
